Dear Comrade Goldilocks,

You are hereby notified that there is an official embargo on your comments in the email and hate mail columns effective with this notice. You recent offerings have been so obtuse, so off-topic, so unintelligible that even Jay Carney, White House Press Jester could only shrug when I asked him to translate.

Your comments read like the proclamations of a Japanese emperor:

The hallowed spirits of Our Imperial Ancestors guarding Us from above, We rely upon the loyalty and courage of Our subjects in Our confident expectation that the task bequeathed by Our forefathers will be carried forward, and that the sources of evil will be speedily eradicated and an enduring peace immutably established.

Please adjust your medication accordingly.

Because you aren’t a Japanese emperor. Just a reminder.

Dear Comrade Emberato,

Yes, except Jesus didn’t say that to a rich, Wall Street broker. He said it to the rich man.

As a priest pointed out to me a few weeks ago, whenever somebody goes by the name “rich man” in the bible, it doesn’t end well for him.

That’s because it denotes what is most important to the man.
